Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant Honored With Multiple Awards at 2014 World Beer Cup

On Friday, April 11, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant earned five prestigious awards from the Brewers Association – the not-for-profit trade group dedicated to promoting and protecting America’s small and independent craft brewers – at the 2014 World Beer Cup® Awards, including the highly coveted award for “World Beer Cup 2014 Champion Brewery and Brewmaster” in the Small Brewpub category, marking the third consecutive time Iron Hill has been named the best small brewpub in the world. The bi-annual competition featured 4,754 beers from 1,403 breweries representing 58 countries, with brewers from five continents, and voted on by an elite international panel of judges in 94 different styles of beer.

Already recognized across the brewing industry as a trailblazer in the craft beer movement, Iron Hill is now an international leader and standard bearer. The region’s fastest-growing collection of brewpubs was also presented with five individual awards at the conclusion of the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America in Denver, Colorado. Gold medal awards were earned by head brewer Paul Rutherford, of Iron Hill Chestnut Hill, for The Golden Child in the American-Style Brett Beer category, as well as two awards for head brewer Bob Barrar, of Iron Hill Media: Russian Imperial Stout in the British-Style Imperial Stout category and Russian 2009 in the Aged Beer category. Bronze medal awards were earned by head brewer Tim Stumpf, of Iron Hill Phoenixville, for Bock in the Traditional German-Style Bock category and head brewer Chris LaPierre, of Iron Hill Maple Shade, for Honey Tripper in the Specialty Honey Beer category.

“We are honored and fortunate to have so many talented brewers working for us every day and continuing to push the boundaries of great and interesting beers,” says Director of Brewing Operations Mark Edelson. “To be recognized on a global scale, especially as the best small brewpub in the world, is really a testament to all the hard work our entire staff puts in on a daily basis.”

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
